Synopsis

For the first time on televison the greatest voyages of discovery in human history are brought to life. Where did the Pacific Islanders come from? How did they discover and settle thousands of islands over thousands kilometers of open ocean? Why did they build giant constructions like the Easter Island statues? Recent breakthroughs led by Australian scientists in DNA, linguistics and archaeology working with Indigenous people across the Pacific are finally answering these questions.
